Where is the manual?
If that doesn’t work?
What do we do?
Call out the Canadian National Guard?
We have a Canadian National Guard?
Well … Maybe not … But we have Grannies … Lots of Grannies … And more in training … All across North America. began in Canada … did you know?
One of these years we Grannies will be in the majority … Then just watch us! Hmmm … Who said that
What happened to the Canadian Guards? Does anyone know?
Does anyone Remember?
What if the Grannies adopted their badge and wore them for Canada?
Is there a song?
Hmmmm … Guess this Grannie will just have to write a song and call it Ad Mare Usque ad Mari. Errrr … How about Ad Mari first … Followed by Ad Mare … Does it make a difference? Does anyone ever listen to the words anyway?
No more than they ever listened to the Grannies … One might suppose there would have been some respect for the grannies who taught them … Or tried to teach them the value of a peaceful world. So where are all the grannies that were attached to the Canadian Guards
H… That song … Can’t forget the song … We really need a song.
To rally the grannies? That too. Most of all we need to show respect for the Grannies who stepped back and let others go ahead of them … who raised the children … Who built up the libraries and raised money for schools and churches … who worked for all those non-profit organizations … who dedicated their lives as volunteers … Making Canada a better place.
… Now those grannies need help. Who is helping the Grannies?
Ok let’s try to write the Ultimate Granny Song
Before every guard
There is a Granny
Singing loud and free
A mari usque ad mare
Beside every guard
There is a granny
Help us to …
Behind every guard
There is a Granny
Singing out singing out
A Mari usque ad mare
Though the Grannies were never honoured
Though no plaques
With their names appear
Be assured they did their share
To keep our country free
